The Braves will be in New York for the 4th and final game of the series vs. the Mets Wednesday at 7:10 ET. Game 3 is Tuesday at 7:10 ET.
They met for a double header on Monday and split the games.
Max Fried will start for the Braves and I am not sure who will go for the Mets.
The Braves certainly are not playing how they wish to be, but they are playing better recently. Atlanta has won 4 of their last 6 games.
At 34-37, this club is 3rd in the National League East. The Mets are 5 games ahead of them.
Before the series against New York, the Braves took 3 out of 4 against the Cardinals.
Ian Anderson went 5.2 innings on Monday in game 2 and did not allow a run. It is a good thing he was that good because the Braves only scored 1 run.
Max Fried has not been as good as he has in the past. He is 4-4 with a 4.37 ERA. He will look to build on his last start where he went 7 innings and allowed 1 run to the Cardinals on June 18th.
Atlanta pitching has been rough this year. They have a 4.39 ERA which is 19th best. Their bullpen has really killed them. The unit has an ERA close to 5.
Their offense has been consistent this year. They rank 10th scoring 4.72 runs per game.
Ronald Acuna Jr., Freddie Freeman, Ozzie Albies, and Austin Riley are some of their big hitters.
Atlanta has hit 101 home runs which is 4th best.
New York Mets
The Mets have been decent this year. They are not playing well recently, having lost 5 of their last 7 games.
Despite their recent struggles, they find themselves 1st in the National League East with a record of 37-30. They are 4 games ahead of the Phillies.
Before this series against the Braves, New York lost 3 out 4 to the Nationals in Washington.
Jacob deGrom was excellent in game 1 as he got the victory. Game 2 was a bullpen game. The lone rune given up was when Miguel Castro gave up a home run to Ronald Acuna Jr.
A pitcher has not been named for game 4. Joey Lucchesi suffered a UCL tear, which means someone will have to fill his spot in the rotation.
New York pitching has gotten strong efforts from their starters and bullpen this year. They are 2nd in baseball with a 3.12 ERA.
Their offense has still yet to really get anything going. They are 29th in baseball, scoring less than 3.7 runs per game. They have only scored 8 runs is their last 4 games.
The Mets are 26th with 67 homers hit.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Braves are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 4 of a series.
- Braves are 4-1 in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning record.
- Mets are 2-5 in their last 7 games overall.
- Mets are 2-5 in their last 7 games on grass.
- Mets are 1-4 in their last 5 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30.
Toronto Blue Jays vs. Miami Marlins MLB Prediction:
I feel that the Braves have a good chance to win this one.
If Atlanta wants to gain any ground in their division, they need to get wins against the team ahead of them.
I look for Max Fried to carry over his strong outing against the Cardinals into this game. St. Louis is a much better offense than New York. I believe he will be able to keep the Mets in check in this one. This will likely be a bullpen game for the Mets. The Braves may not score a ton of runs, but I like them to win.
I will lay the -116 with the Braves.
